Found this great place on an Urban List. We were greeted by a welcoming and cool multi terrace environment. My wife was not sure what to order and the bartender made the perfect suggestion. The steel straw is a cool idea. We ordered Flipside burgers....More

Nice bar, good roof terrace, good drinks, prices aren't outrageous by Perth standards and part of the heartbeat of the new Northbridge. Not that easy to find unless you know the alley it is on (down the side of the Alex hotel). You can order...More

Awesome bartenders! Attentive, hilarious and just all around really cool to chat with.(The scottish Conor Mcgregor) Good choice of beers, especially some Czech beer! Sick hidden rooftop and good music, we only wish that it would be open a bit longer.

Good cocktails but one terribly rude bar staff. Stated that he couldn’t understand our Irish accents when we complained about being served a mojito in a martini sized glass for $17

There is a bit of a view, but maybe not as iconic or romantic as the one that you see in the movies. But being in the city, I reckon it's good enough :)
